Quiz Question: Many of us know that the first Rajdhani Express was started in 1969 between Howrah and New DElhi and the second was the Bombay Rajdhani which started in 1972.
Now we have a number of Rajdhanis. The Question is which was India's third Rajdhani and when did it start?

The third Rajdhani was also a HWH-NDLS Rajdhani (one went via Gaya, other via Patna). The fourth Rajdhani was August Kranti Rajdhani, which started sometime around 1991-1992 (based on my memory).
Now, if the question were which was the third city to get a Rajdhani, probably Bangalore.

I've been watching the arrival time in Raipur for this train (both, from Mumbai as well as from Howrah), and it appears to take couple of hours less than it would, if were to run on its scheduled time.
To put that in perspective, this train is re-scheduled to leave Howrah at 5.30 am, and reached Raipur at 15.57, or in about 10 hours and 27 minutes. Likewise, if this train is really leaving Mumbai CST at 4 am, and gets to Raipur at 21.07, it is taking only 17 hours to cover the distance?

Ya HWH mumbai is one of the greatest routes of India.If the trains start late also(as late as 9 hrs)from their originating station,they can makeup the time or at least can reach the destination in same amt of scheduled time.The same case if would have happened to ECR,NER,NCR...there trains running on time becomes 4/5 Hrs delay beacause of mismanagement of the Chief Controllers of that specific Rly Zone.

What I really find interesting is that the train is taking almost as little time covering the distance as Duronto Express but with almost 35 more stops.

The rake sharing note indicates that 12951/52 have rake sharing with 12953/54.
I do not think it is correct.
The 12951/52 have B9 while 12953/54 do have till B8 only and hence there is no possibility of rake sharing.
It is a different matter that when coaches are taken off the rake for major service, these are attached to any of the 4 rakes
...
more...
as per the requirement and this facilitates the administration to have less buffer stock. However, it does not tantamount to RAKE SHARING.
Please opine and if ok, the note existing at 'Rake Sharing' needs to be modified indicating no Rake Sharing.
Thanks!

There appears to be rake sharing between the two Rajdhanis between Mumbai and Delhi.

51/52 reach early and depart early (at/from both the ends) while 53/54 reaches after it and also departs after it (at/from both the ends) .
In this situation, RSA would mean that early reaching rake will depart late and late reaching rake will depart early which shows - no purpose.
(In case of 19115/16, 19131/32 the rakes are logically shared at Bandra Terminus. 19116 reaches late but departs early hence as 19115, the rake coming as 19132 is used to avoid any possible delay and also to maintain the rakes. Yet, the
...

structure of both the trains is THE SAME.)
On the other count, B9 in 51/52 is in between the rakes and attaching / detaching on daily basis may not be so easy.
(Jaipur-Nagda-Kota-Jaipur rakes are shared for Jaipur-Bayana-Jaipur. The former has AC class while the later does not have. Yet, the AC coaches are not detached but kept locked and those run with the rake empty. You will never find B9 in 53/54.)
The coaches of 19251/52 are having plates indicating New Delhi while the coaches of 12953/54 indicate Nizamuddin. Changing plates of all the coaches of both the trains on daily basis is not expected.
To remove any misunderstanding, I wish to add here that as per the need, coaches of both the trains are used from time to time , to be attached to other rakes after the detached maintenance.

I traveled on Mumbai - Madgaon JanShatabdi, that interestingly enough has an RSA with Aurangabad Janshatabdi. However, the rake I had (it was KR), showed the right plates on each coach, except on the end coaches where it had numbers for both JanShatabdis.
In case of the two Rajdhanis, RSA may not be a daily occurence but used when one rake goes for longer maintenance (I assume that happens once a week) than the 8 hours would allow at Mumbai.

it could be a case of one coach being used for both shatabdis because of maintenance issues?

I used the Mumbai Rajdhani extensively in 1980s and 1990s and haven't since 2000.
How is the quality of food and service on that train now? the Kitchen car then used to be managed departmentally by WR. The service especially in First AC used to be fantastic, The food used to be served by the waiter from serving bowls on to plates and give liberal second helpings
Just curious how is the food in terms of quality and service now? Is the catering contract with a contractor now?
Thanks

Superb food and service. I traveled AC First on this train from Mumbai to New Delhi on Oct 14. The train also reached each one of its intermediate stops before time, which was a pleasant surprise considering its average speed. However, a delay in the outskirts of New Delhi had the train delayed to its destination by 30-35 minutes.

Thanks... I am particularly interested whether the waiters move from cabin to cabin serving the dishes on the plates...rather than having small bowls of foodgiven on a tray like the rest of the trains..

If the composition varies by only marginal, then the previous train will be allowed to cater another train's needs provided the gap of the trains must be 5-6 hours.

But one is an NER rake while the other is NFR. It should imply that Karmabhoomi is not always an NFR rake. Likewise, Janmabhoomi is occasionally using NFR rake.

Zones doesn't matter.
As long as the first rake is not overdosed, it is asked to carry on for another journey may be with trains for another zones.
Travel classes more or less should be same.

Seems like a myth, as both belong to different zone, with different primary maintenance depot!! And schedule for both doesnt match for any RSA chance. The closest RSA contender for Jan-Sadharan is ADI Jan-Sadharan itself!!

But r u sure there is RSA for this train.
Journey time and distance is so long that it takes up almost a week to return to Kamakhya.

Traveled by this train on Oct 20 from Lucknow to Raipur. It runs very well and reached virtually every one of its intermediate stops ahead of schedule, and the final destination (Raipur) on time. However, it bothered me that the train was slowed considerably in the last segment since a slower Express train was in front of it, otherwise it would have made the destination ahead of schedule as well.
A few days later, I went to receive my sister traveling by it, and the train was again well on time, except that it was delayed by 30 minutes... again due to following the same Express train which was running late. What is the point of "superfast" category for the Garibrath if

more...
it doesn't have the priority? In fact, this train could have overtaken the slower (Sarnath) Express on both occasions without the latter having to stop anywhere (just as express/mail trains overtake running goods trains on triple-line sections between Bilaspur and Raipur.

Actually there is an RSA between August Kranti Rajdhani and Rajdhani Express trains between Mumbai and New Delhi. This is also evident in the train schedule displayed inside the coaches.

The Railways has worked out details to strengthen security measures under the Integrated Security Scheme (ISS) to deal with threat perceptions from terrorists and banned Naxal outfits across the country. It is seriously mulling an idea to make it mandatory for passengers to reach their respective stations at least an hour before departure of trains. This would facilitate railway security personnel to carry out security check of passengers on the pattern of airport security check. According to a Railway Board official, railways has introduced this system at the New Delhi station on a trial basis. "
